Roxy Women's Surfing Festival - Phillip
Island To Host Richest Women's Longboard Event In Australia
Tuesday, 23 October 2007 - The upcoming
Roxy Surf Festival at Phillip Island in January announces
Australia's biggest ever ASP Longboard Qualifying Series Women's
event by upgrading to a three star rating.
In conjunction with the upgrade, reigning

Champion Jennifer Smith (San Diego, CA, USA) along with stylish
Kassia Meador (Oceanside, CA, USA) will come to Phillip Island
in January to compete in what is certain to be the best ever
display of women's longboarding seen in Australia.
Globally, women's longboard surfing is
booming and Phillip Island is the ideal location for the world's
best to display their style, grace and finesse and all round
skills with an abundance of excellent waves across the entire
island. Phillip Island has more than a dozen world-class reef,
beach and point breaks.
It's all part of the Roxy Surf Festival
which includes the 6-star ASP World Qualifying Series division
along with the Roxy Pro Junior division, and amateur divisions
making for the world's biggest Women's surfing festival.
Surfing Victoria's Max Wells commented
on the announcement saying; "This years Roxy Surf Festival
will be massive - the event has proved itself by delivering
fantastic surf every year and the world's best females look
forward to surfing great waves and having a great time at
Phillip Island each year - It's a special gathering and a
serious professional event which enjoys the summer fun atmosphere
of the island."
The 2 top place getters in the Roxy Phillip
Island event will receive a top round seed to the Roxy ASP
World Championship July 9th – 14th 2008, which will
decide the ASP Women’s World Championship at Cote des
Basques, Biarritz, France.
Jennifer Smith claimed the ASP World
Longboard Title in France at the Roxy Jam in early July and
she's also the ASP North American Longboarding champion while
Kassia Meador is renown for both her free surfing style and
competitive abilities. Both will face a huge contingent of
talented Australian longboarders lead by the defending Roxy
champion Chelsea Williams (Tweed Heads).
